Wisconsin Weather

MAR 5, 2020 | Clipper Snow/Wintry mix on Thursday

LAST UPDATE : MAR 6, 2020

8:30AM THU - temperatures rising much higher than forecast across Wisconsin helping to reduce overall snow impact. Turning much of it to rain in central Wisconsin. Snow developing north.

9:30PM WEDS - A clipper type system will slide through Wisconsin during the day Thursday. It's a little more complicated with this storm as a secondary low pressure center slides in from the southwest dragging a quick hitting band of snow or wintry mix. This band may develop all the way into southern WI during the mid-day hours.

For Wisconsin models indicate generally less 1" or less for most locations. Temperatures stay down during the day with clouds hanging around. So while conventional wisdom would suggest this snow melts off right away with recent warmth and March daytime timing...it might not. Snow showers or flurries may return for the evening hours with little to no additional accumulation.

Snow totals will be highest up north, Park Falls - Minocqua - Niagra probably in the 1-3" range. Upper Michigan will see 5-8" closer to the track of the parent low. Impact for the rest of Wisconsin overall will be low and similar to Tuesday.

in the mid-upper 30s, near 40F southwest. Pretty warm to start. As the band of snow/mix passes through probably won't have much impact. A few locations reporting rain.
